Hello,

is there any reasons that the 1st hard drive must connect to the end (black colour connector) of an ATA100 IDE cable stated by harddrive manufacture even if there is only 1 harddrive ? By connecting at the middle connector (grey colour) of an ATA100 IDE cable, the length between mainboard and harddrive is reduce therefore it's better ?

there is no improvement with either, the middle connector is for a second HDD if you set your HDD jumpers to master it will be the first HDD on the chanel nomatter the placement, I recomend that you just connect it to the far connector for convience if you place a second HDD and forgot to set it ot slave or left it on cable select it will not cause roblems but is ou have a master on the closer one and a slave on the further one you may have slight problems
